    Savings on Sky & House insurance thanks to Money saving expert 8th Nov 12 at 8:32 PM
    Having watched a couple of Martin Lewis's shows recently i decided to call Sky. I pay around 80 a month for tv, broadband and phone line. I have been with them for 7 years and told them i wanted to reduce my spend by about 25 a month. After asking them to take off sky sports and my multiroom i was told i could have 6 months free line rental worth 14.50 a month. My unlimited broadband cost was reduced to 7.50 from 10 a month and sky sports reduced by half, saving me another 10.50 a month for 6 months, so in ten minutes i reduced the cost by 27.50 and still have sky sports and multi room. I was told that i can, after the 6 months, phone them to cancel sky sports if i want to as the cost will rise again, but hey 165 saving for 6 months is good going.

    I then phoned Halifax after comparing building and contents insurance on compare the market and found i am paying for unlimited building and 35,000 contents. By reducing it to 400,000 buildings and 25,000 contents i am saving 214.97 a month and my house insurance is now 17.70 a month instead of almost 35.

    Check your car insurance online too. Churchill cover my partners car with me as named driver and again on compare the market, the same quote online was almost 250 cheaper than he pays for his and with one phone call they reduced it down and also gave him free breakdown cover into the bargain.
